6. "Give A Little Bit"
Air Date: October 4, 2009
"Give A Little Bit" is a surprisingly sweet episode and one that significantly advances the plot after a season that mostly stood still, wrapping things up so nicely that some feared it was actually the series finale.
It's an exhibition of everything the show does well: celebrity cameos (Matt Damon takes aim for best Entourage guest, over-the-top Ari scenes (the paintball sequence is so awesome you can ignore the fact that he'd realistically be facing about a dozen lawsuits), Hollywood high stakes (Drama vs. the audition...again), and awesome music selections (Jay-Z's "In My Lifetime (Remix)"). Oh, and genuine romance. Act like you didn't crack a smile when Eric jumped back off of the plane.
